CONTROLS: Push-button simplicity for level and inventory data from BinMaster

LINCOLN, Neb. – BinMaster has an easier way to access level and inventory data for bins, tanks or silos. Mounted at ground level or from a truck loadout, the C-100 has the answers at the push of a button. No more having to boot up a computer or go to a distant control room.

The C-100 control console provides level and inventory data with push-button ease.

Refreshed with many new features in 2017, the C-100 control console and the C-100 MB with Modbus Communications feature a 24-V DC power supply and a NEMA 4X rating for resistance against windblown dust and rain. Consoles are often installed near load out areas for access from trucks or at ground level for worker walk-up use.

The newly updated consoles offer a wide range of measurement units including feet or cubic feet, US gallons or bushels, and tons or metric tons. Additionally, you can select the measurement type as product or headroom and measurement format in pounds, tons, or kilograms. There is a new auto add/remove feature that will rescan the network and automatically enable new sensors or disable sensors no longer found on the network.

All setup and configuration can be performed on the unit using intuitive push-button controls in either English or Spanish. To make it hassle-free, vessel configuration and user settings are stored in a non-volatile memory to protect against data loss in the event of a power failure. The C-100 can be easily added to your network if you are using Binventory or eBob software or can be used as a stand-alone console.

Each C-100 console will handle a network of up to 120 SmartBob cable-based sensors mounted on bins, tanks or silos.
